The origin of the Pomeranian dog

The Pomeranian was born in a former duchy called Pomerania, located between Germany and Poland. In contrast to the current Pomeranian, the first specimens were much larger. They were used mainly as cattle dogs: they preyed on sheep, cattle, and deer. His original name was Wolfspitz, which translates to Wolf Spitz.

For a brief period, it was also popular in Russia and Siberia where it was used as a sled dog. Although we have few historical references, the truth is that the Pomeranian is thought to have been a very widespread and popular dog in various European regions such as the United Kingdom.

It became popular in ancient Greece and later in Rome, being the dog of choice for ladies with a certain purchasing power. It is at the same time that the selection of certain specimens for breeding begins: small size and affectionate and friendly behavior are sought in this breed, which is very different from what it was previously as a werewolf. In the same way, certain colors are enhanced.

What are the features of Pomeranian dogs?

The Pomeranian is a European Spitz-type dog, accepted by the FCI within Group V: Spitz-type and primitive type dogs, and although we know it as Pomeranian or Dwarf Spitz, its official name is still "Wolvespits".

In contrast to the ancient Pomeranian which weighed about 23 kilograms, the current breed standard is between 1.8 and 2.5 kilograms. So we decided it was a toy or a small dog.

His coat is very long and silky so it will need to be brushed regularly. Currently, the “puppy haircut” is very popular and the short-haired Pomeranian acquires a unique and very cute appearance. Many people claim that their coat does not cause allergies, the Pomeranian is a hypoallergenic dog.

The accepted colors for this breed are black, brown, white, orange, and gray and it is estimated that other colors may also be included. The variety of colors is amazing.

Is Pomeranian Aggressive?

The Pomeranian has long since lost his instincts as a cattle dog. As we explained earlier, when it became a companion dog, some physical characteristics were selected, but some behavioral characteristics were also selected to make it a domestic dog.

He is currently a very affectionate and emotional dog, who hates loneliness and lack of attention. He is also very energetic, attentive and intelligent, and even curious.

The Pomeranian is an ideal dog for very different families but we must be clear before we adopted him that he will need several walks and constant attention and time to educate him. We must also highlight that at times, a Pomeranian can become a very barking dog, we must be prepared in this regard.

His treatment of children has greatly varied in his later generations. In the last century, it was thought to be unsuitable for youngsters because it was so impatient with the tail and hair pulling, that it even reacted negatively.

The Pomeranian is currently the most affectionate, calm, and patient, but for an excellent coexistence it is important to teach children how to relate to it: always in a positive way and never to harm it.

Respecting the dog and leaving it alone when it grows (Roaring is a perfectly normal and usual form of communication) will help us avoid any accident.

Pomeranian dog care

The Pomeranian does not require excessive care. We will clean him regularly to remove dirt and prevent knots from forming in his coat. We also have to remove it every day and check to make sure everything is still perfect.

On the other hand, we emphasize that it is important to protect him from the cold, especially if we notice that he is shivering, we must provide him with a coat to go for a walk, special clothes for small dogs.

Pomeranian dog diseases

If you are considering adopting a long-haired puppy, it is very important to know about hair loss which usually occurs between 4 and 8 months of age. It is a completely normal and normal phase, so there is no need to worry. At that time, the Pomeranian loses nearly all of its hair to make way for the fur it will have in adulthood.

On the other hand, you should know that the continued crossing of samples from the same family can lead to serious genetic problems. This usually happens in some kennels, non-approved places, and when any dog ​​is being bred without any knowledge.

Eye diseases are found in Pomeranians, especially those very old dogs. It is a normal condition that affects aging dogs.

Dislocation (improper placement of the bone), tooth discomfort, or an open forehead (a problem that leaves an area of ​​the skull open) are other problems that can affect you, although they are less common.

Take him to the vet every six months and check his face regularly, and the correct movement of his limbs and entire body in search of bumps will be a way to detect possible disease. Obviously, your vaccination schedule should also be updated in addition to the use of pipettes and internal dewormers.

Teaching a Pomeranian

The Pomeranian is known to be a very intelligent dog, to the point where they can sometimes become excessively pampered. We must be firm in teaching him and set some advance guidelines before adopting him: let him climb on the sofa or not, when and where he should eat, etc. Regularity and stability will be a very important factors in making our Pomeranian feel comfortable and comfortable at home.

In the puppy stage we should be actively socializing, a stage in which we teach him to handle people, children, dogs, cats, and things. Everything he knows in a positive way in the process will serve us well into adulthood, being a very social and fearless dog. It is the foundation of your education.

Once the dog begins to reach youth, we will begin to teach him basic obedience, always using positive reinforcement. Teaching him to sit down, or to come here, to lie down, or to remain still, will be an essential place for his safety and for him to pay attention to us. It also strengthens your relationship.

Later you can train your Pomeranian to apply advanced commands and fun tricks, and with his intelligence, you will have no trouble teaching him.
